  • Ann Francis, Cambrian Credit Union

    The North Wales Business Academy's Strategic Business Analysis course has been a great experience. Coming on the back of a period of change this course will give us the opportunity to focus on where we want to be as a company, what we are doing, and how to get going.

  • Joanne Rudkin, Patchwork Traditional Food Company

    There are three of us attending the SBA, and so far it has offered us the opportunity to have some time away from the office to review our business practices and look at how, as a new management team we can move the business forward.

  • Tim Jones, GeoBrio Consulting Ltd

    I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days and took a lot of useful techniques from it which I intend to apply as I prepare my business for a new product launch. The staff were knowledgeable and the module was conducted in a very relaxed but still professional environment.

  • Tom Smith, Window-Tint.co.uk

    I'd recommend the NWBA to fellow business owners. The cost for the initial training was 150 pounds, which is great value considering the quality of the training and mentoring which is included. It's well worth it for a small to medium size enterprise that is looking to expand.

  • Martin Davis, Sports Wales National Outdoor Centre – Plas Menai

    The investment that the North Wales Business Academy has put into this course is fantastic, we've had a number of tutors and experts introduce subjects such as Management and Developing People, they all have industry knowledge and real life experience which really helps bring the subjects to life.

  • Andy Snook, Woodcroft Care Home

    As an owner of a care home with 33 years' experience in the industry I joined the North Wales Business Academy because I wanted to know if we were doing the right things to sustain and develop the business. Are the plans I have in place sound, and do they reflect my values and goals?

  • Rich Brady, Brady Global

    The SBA gave me the opportunity to take a step back and really think about the next 5-10 years. The mentoring that was included was invaluable, and the academic work has informed the future direction of the business – starting with the re-brand and launch of Brady Global
